Playing Arkham City a bit. I loved Asylum but never got hooked into the sequels. Maybe this time I will stick with it. Also trying to resist the urge to buy the new AssCreed. I will try to wait for a sale.

Random musings on Everspace carried over from the last thread:

 

Yes, the game has full HOTAS support since patch 1.1. The devs patched that in even though the Kickstarter goal for flightstick support was not reached. I still stand by not using anything else than keyboard & mouse for the game. It is not a space sim and the combat requires heavy strafing to get through.

 

People who say they've killed warships are either talking about frigates or corvettes, or they're lying. Warship cannot be destroyed because they have no hitpoints (and they never had, at any point, in the versions available to players).

 

I also disagree that the game has no sense of progression. The energy core and regeneration perks alone makes things a lot more enjoyable, not to mention easier in later runs, and any of the subroutines or gylphs can make for very interesting combinations. Blueprints and crafting perks make the first four sectors a breeze to run through.

 

Oh and the DLC added a number of side missions, filler content the game maybe lacked outside of getting to the end to understand what the hell's going on.

Beat fractured butthole. Lots of padding but damn the nights were ****ing awesome. Now doing dailies in killing floor 2 and farting around in ESO. It's so awesome and relaxing (yes slow) in that game, u can do so much while not really doing anything lol. Sometimes ya gotta shut down the mind and just coast.
Also got some brand new players to play tabletop tomorrow for thier very first time. Yay tutorial day lol.

Picked up the Necromancer in Diablo 3, seems like it could be good fun but shelving it now until the next Season starts in 2 days.

 

Installing Observer right now and I've been eyeballing Hellblade, it wasn't on sale in the recent Stam sales but I'm rather tempted to get it full price due to all the good things I keep hearing about the game.

Was the main story any better than Stick of Truth? That was the only thing I didn't really care for in that one, but maybe that's just me not caring for South Park story telling past the initial few seasons. Doubt I'll pick up the sequel any time soon or at all assuming SOT is the better game.

It's like Jet Set Radio but with guns & mutants that kill you pretty fast if you stay at one spot for to long.

I am back to ArmA3, preparing a new campaign, writing design document, setting up everything... I'm so stressed out, because I have only little time and I want to pitch that thing soonish.

I love the parkour/movement in that game! It's such a shame that the game is so overlooked. Probably the most unique game on Xbox One.

True. It's Insomniac Games trying something new and refreshing which works pretty well. It might disappoint some people that it's a 900p@30fps game but the performance is rock solid and consistent. It made me think the game was running at 60fps at first.

Ha. I just bought Diablo 3 last night for PC. I've played a little on console three years ago and was very disappointed in character progression and how you automatically unlock.

I wouldn't buy it then, I don't believe it was.

Well the One X is here and all my newer console games look glorious! Even old 360 games like Skate 3 are in 4K. My PC kinda lost its main advantage (higher resolution) over Xbox for now...

Can you play Red Dead Redemption in a resolution that doesn't stink?

I saw that you could even play the old original Xbox KOTOR games.  That alone almost got me to buy one.

Regardless of what anyone says, it's a nice console, as is the PS4. Glad that consoles are still being made, improved and most importantly, they're doing very well on the market. Now the thing Microsoft needs is to get some exclusives.

Edit: And by exclusives I mean games that aren't on PC as well.

I doubt that will happen.  

 

I'm playing some witcher in 4k on ps4pro, testing a monitor. Now i just have to decide which monitor i want to buy. Don't have room for  TV here, that's why i'm looking at monitors. IPS, 60hz will do, HDR is not really needed but PIP or Split screen would be nice. So LG i guess.
